About the Wincombe Centre

The Wincombe Centre provides a friendly, professional and encouraging business office space environment for both new and growing businesses in Shaftesbury, Dorset.

Most of our Licensees are small businesses, some just starting out, others long established.  At The Wincombe Centre you will find yourself with like-minded people and our on site management offer a friendly and supportive presence to ensure the smooth running of the property, leaving you free to get on with running your business.


Signing up and moving in can be done on the same day with as simple 2 page Licence Agreement and weekly inclusive licence fees.  No need for costly legal fees.


Our weekly fees are inclusive of all utilities, property insurance, maintenance, parking, common parts cleaning and waste disposal.  No hidden costs.


The Centre has a wide range of units suitable for one man to eight man operations.  With our EASY IN EASY OUT terms, you need only give two weeks’ notice to leave or to relocate within the centre, giving you the ability to respond directly to the needs of your business and to optimise cost effectiveness.

You have access to your unit 24/7 and clients will be able to visit your unit via your block entrance.  In addition to this, reception is open from 9am – 3pm daily, with our management team on hand to help and advise, plus mobile phone support out of these hours.

Meet the Team

Wendy Ibbotson – Centre Manager



Wendy joined The Wincombe Centre in June 2009, having come from a public relations background. She is highly regarded by the tenants and is a really helpful support to have around the centre.  From booking the meeting room to organising network lunches, Wendy really brings the Centre alive.

‘I’ve been here at the Centre since the Partners took over.  They have invested a great deal over the last twelve years and I have seen the Centre grow and become the vibrant business hub that it is now. It’s a great place to work and to network with other like minded businesses and I really enjoy following all of their successes.’



Anne Wilkins – Receptionist / Administrator

Anne joined the centre in January 2014. She shares the same passion for the centre as Wendy, so together they form a formidable team – Dynamic, cheerful and always ready to go the extra mile!

‘I have thoroughly enjoyed my seven years at the centre so far.  It’s the best place to work and I love meeting business men and women from all background. No two days are ever the same here, so it’s such an interesting place to work.’



Rob, David and Brian (The Partners)

The Wincombe Centre is run by a Partnership.  They can be seen regularly onsite for management meetings, and take a real interest in the Centre and all of its businesses. 

‘We’re really proud of the Wincombe Centre, it has become the Centre of excellence that we envisaged when we first took over and began the first of many conversions, taking us from 11 units to the 44 that we have now.

We have seen real growth and success in the businesses based here and are hopeful that we provide a good, reliable service to small businesses in North Dorset, with our easy in easy out licences and great meeting room facilities.’
